Overview

Engage your students and strike the perfect balance between level of detail and accessibility! Written for a one-semester, non-Biology majors course, BIOLOGY TODAY AND TOMORROW is packed with applications that are relevant to a student's daily life. The clear, straightforward writing style, in-text learning support, and trendsetting art help students understand key concepts. The accompanying Aplia for Biology further improves comprehension and outcomes by increasing student effort engagement and retention. Overall, this accessible and engaging introduction to biology provides an understanding of biology and the process of science while developing the critical-thinking skills students need to become responsible citizens of the world.

Cecie Starr,

For two decades, Cecie Starr secured her place as one of the bestselling biology textbook authors. Her texts, appreciated for their clarity in both the written word and the visual representation of biological concepts, include multiple editions of BIOLOGY: THE UNITY AND DIVERSITY OF LIFE, BIOLOGY: CONCEPTS AND APPLICATIONS, and BIOLOGY TODAY AND TOMORROW. Her original dream was to become an architect, but now, instead of building houses, she builds -- with care and attention to detail -- incredible texts based on this philosophy: "I invite students into a chapter through an intriguing story. Once inside, they get the great windows that biologists construct on the world of life. Biology is not just another house. It is a conceptual mansion. I hope to do it justice."

Christine Evers,

Christine Evers (B.S. in Biology, State University of New York at Stony Brook) has been creating multimedia and web-based materials to supplement Starr and other science texts for ten years. After working as a research assistant studying developmental biology of slime mold, she was awarded an N.S.F. fellowship to attend Yale, where she studied Evolutionary Biology and honeybee behavior. She has a strong interest in science education and serves as a member of her local school board.
  • NEW! Aplia for Biology helps students learn and understand key concepts via focused assignments and active learning opportunities that include randomized, automatically graded questions, exceptional text interaction, and immediate feedback.
  • NEW! Chapter pedagogy provides more help for students to focus on key concepts, make connections to prior concepts, and see where the material is leading.
  • NEW! The text is updated throughout with the latest research and even more clarity.
  • Accessible Text: The clear writing style engages students and makes the material accessible without glossing over the science—even with the most formidable topics.
  • A Wealth of Applications: Chapter opening sections motivate students by exploring a current event or controversy directly related to the chapter's content. "How Would You Vote?" questions give students the opportunity to practice making an informed choice about a science-related controversy.
  • In-Text Learning Tools: "Take-Home Messages" at the end of each section help students grasp the key concepts. The on-page running glossary provides students with immediate support with the language of Biology as they read.
  • Helpful Art: The visually-appealing and accurate art program helps visual learners with step-by-step art, "Figure It Out" images, and animated figures. Eye-catching, chapter-opening art grabs student interest and highlights the chapter's big picture topic. It also appears within the chapter as an example.
  • Clear Photosynthesis and Cellular Respiration Coverage: Chapter 5, Capturing and Releasing Energy, combines the coverage of Photosynthesis and Cellular Respiration to reveal more completely and easily these key concepts.
  • End of Chapter Support: The Visual Summary reinforces key concepts and links the chapter content visually for students. Each chapter also includes a Self Quiz, Critical Thinking questions, and Digging Into Data exercises.
